Driver flees after crashing vehicle in La Croix

Police are searching for a driver who crashed into two vehicles Tuesday afternoon at La Croix.

Reports are that the unidentified man, who was travelling in a dark green van with a small child, about one-year-old, attempted to drive through a narrow space and crashed.

The incident is reported to have occurred around 4:30 p.m.

An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that the driver was heading towards Castries, when he approached a truck parked on the side of the road and an incoming vehicle on the other lane.

Instead of pulling over to the side, and allowing the other vehicle to pass, the man tried to maneuver his way through both vehicles and crashed, hurting himself and the infant that was in his company.

The eyewitness said upon realizing what had happened, the driver, who seems unlicensed, picked up the infant and started running. He was noticed limping and the infant was crying.

Reports are that he stopped a block away and asked for assistance. The ambulance service arrived and took the infant to the hospital. But when the police turned up at the accident scene, he had already fled.

  1. i am reading this story but what i am seeing being painted here is that its like the guy did a hit an run, although it could be i dont entirely think so. cause if i was in his shoes and i had my one year old son with me i would jump out the vehicle and run with him to get assistance. i mean look the guy put his child in the ambulance when it came, and its obvious enough he would not be on the scene when the police came because any parent that is there with their child alone would most likely go to the hospital in the ambulance with the child to see about them.

    so @ Really , now i see why you said what you said and it makes sense to me now. you are definitely correct to bad the others can see that instead of trying to understand for them selves rather than letting the story think for them

  2. if only he had waited his turn this would have been avoided. hope the infant will be okay.

  3. Wasted news. If he is hurt and he has an infant, a baby, why wait for police? In the shock and panic, his instinct is to see after the well being of himself and the infant? Why wait for police at scene when child needs immediate care. Come on be realistic.

    • Small mind the report is for identification purposes and after securing the infant in the care of the ambulance what is stopping him from waiting? ? Really condoning that? ?

    • And obviously the fastest way to get the child medical attention is to pick him/her up and run away. Yeah... driving away would just be to slow?!
